  Sorry for causing a lot of frustration, José.  Surely, I must have
dropped some balls.  But I thought we did something toward the goal
(c) you mentioned.  It is true that I didn't try to track the all
discussion in the Debian world after our relicensing efforts...  That
I thought did get Etoys at least to the "non-free" section.  (I was
tracking these discussion when Lex Spoon was involved in debian-legal,
but...  Like you would agree, that kind of discussion is enough to
burn one out.)

   Again I'm sorry for not tracking everything, but could you explain
what was the objection to make it "main"?

  One thing that was or was not related was that it is binary.
Various people thought about it but also various people thought that
it is not our problem but theirs if that is the sticking point.
